At Green Lake we embody four unique gospel values.
These values, along with our vision for gospel ministry, form and determine our life together.
This is our chief core value, the one from which the others flow. If we're to be dedicated followers of Jesus, then the gospel must first be formed in our heart. This happens when we come to value the things Jesus valued and love what he loved. Gospel formation happens through worship, training in Christian living, and acts of serving one another. We believe this formative path of learning, doing, and experiencing not only glorifies God, but also transforms the soul and blesses others.
Following Jesus is never a solo process. It demands a community of fellow followers who are able to walk with us, to support us as we seek the things of Christ. Community means both deep joy and gratitude as well as the possibility for sorrow and brokenness. This is because community is more than people who look, think, and act like us. Gospel Community means partnership and accountability in a singular vision--to pursue the things of Jesus.
Gospel Service and Mercy
God calls each one of us to a particular mission. Whether that mission takes place in the home, and artist's studio, or classroom, God has equipped each of us with different gifts--missional assets, if you will--to serve others and expand the reach and influence of the Kingdom. What are your gifts? We believe these gifts are important and necessary for the health and growth not only of the church, but for the individual's personal discipleship as well.
Jesus compares the Kingdom of God to a mustard seed, something small and fragile but with large potential for growth and multiplication. The same is true for the church. God calls us to multiply our efforts by planting churches and ministries so that His gospel can take root in new places. We're on a mission to grow not only in spiritual vitality and health, but also in influence, scope, and reach. And we want you to be a part of it.
